I have read a fair amount of books by this author and out of all those books I’ve read, not a single one compares to this reading experience.
Note: I read this story 1.5 times … here’s why/how: The first time I started to read this story I was determined the author was NOT gonna pull one over me (if you’ve read her duets before, then you know exactly what that means). So I’m reading and I can’t say at what exact point I thought “Jesus, what?!” … I’d been paying SO close attention that I was missing the forest for the trees. (do I have to explain that? I hope not) So I started over and just read …. And here’s what happened: (lol)
“oh that makes sense”
“what the heck is happening”
“oh wait, okay so ….”
“no, that’s not right”
“so she ….”
“yeah, no, that can’t be”
**crying like a baby **
The reason I’m sharing what my mind was going thru the entire time I was reading is so maybe you’ll understand the greatness that is between the pages of this book. Aly Martinez has proven time and time again that she can write the heck out of a duet. She can write the heck out of a story that will make you go whaaaaaaaaaaat at the end of the first book. What she has never done, in my opinion, is level up to a story where it’s not just A twist, it is ALL a twist. There are a lot of pieces on this chessboard, and they are ALL MOVING AT THE SAME TIME. That what, wow moment you usually feel at the end of the first book of a duet, you will feel from page one and every page there after! Trust me on that.
When I finished this story, I was sooooo overwhelmed with feelings I just stared into space for a while. The story itself is captivating, shocking, realistic, suspenseful, romantic, heart-breaking, heart-warming, ugly, pretty, intense and it will grab your soul in a vise and not let go. The characters that make up this journey are layered beyond anything I have read of late. They are strong and powerful, purposeful, intriguing, shocking and very real. The unfolding of this story is a work of art. WELL DONE!
The Truth About Us ➡
THE TWISTS NEVER STOP. EVER. *blink*
There's nothing about the actual plot of this book that I am going to reveal to you because you need to experience this yourself. When I stated the twists never stop, I was NOT TRYING TO BE CUTE. You guy ... for real, this story will BLOW YOUR MIND. I challenge anyone to tell me that the conclusion of this #clustermindfk journey you could predict. Honestly, I've never read a duet where the second part just keeps twisting. I mean obviously all the questions you are left with from part one are answered (maybe) but then there's MORE! The hits just keep coming.
I read this in a review of this book: "Aly Martinez is an emotional sadist."
Me: why yes, yes she is, and she is glorious because of it!
This story is going to take you thru the ringer, as they say. It will OWN you. You will be a slave to every word. You will not sleep, drink, eat and possibly breath while you read this journey. You just can't stop. It is that thrilling and exciting and so full of heart . You will root for every single person that makes up this journey. Because this is not just about two people finding a HEA .... not even a little.
Enjoy the ride people. It is phenomenal!
The Truth About Lies:
This book is so brilliantly written with so many twists and turns, I was on the edge of my seat reading this book. Penn and Cora are two hurt and damaged souls looking for their own version of freedom. Penn from a horrific tragedy four years earlier, by making the guilty pay and Cora the freedom from the horrific life she's had to live. The find each and some happiness, but happiness is fleeting.
The Truth about Us:
It is nothing short of an EPIC conclusion to this duet!!! I seriously couldn't put it down. This couple may be my most favorite Aly Martinez couple of all times. The writing is incredible. Mad props for the way this author keeps you hooked on a story without going over the top.
This story is a joy I didn't quite expect to feel. The situations that brought Penn and Cora together are neither happy nor are they to be celebrated. But somehow, Martinez found the good, the special and the light that both characters needed and shone it brightly despite all the tiresome darkness that surrounded them almost daily. Add to that the dry humor that Cora possesses that even makes the stoic Penn smile and well you have one epic read. It goes to show you the supreme gift that Aly Martinez has in bringing forth a book that can still be hopeful despite the most extenuating of circumstances.
Full of twists and turns and a whole lotta love, I happily give The Truth About Lies a huge 5 stars!
Gobsmacked. Yup that's me right now as I finished The Truth About Us. Aly Martinez did the slow simmer kind of storytelling with this second book in The Truth Duet and as much as I thought I knew how this wild tale would conclude, let me just say that I really had no clue. Martinez had me all comfortable and then BAM I'm blown away once more.
Once again, Martinez gives us endearing yet beautifully witty characters in Cora and Penn. Despite all that has happened to both of them, they have a fiery spirit that simply cannot be extinguished. As more and more secrets are revealed and lives are still hanging in the balance, their love somehow survives but not before hearts get beaten up and hung out to dry.
Whatever you may think will happen, might. But be prepared to be blown away as the story nears its end. Martinez is meticulous in the way she crafts a story and to say this conclusion is compelling is a true understatement. Her gift at making the reader feel 'comfortable' before that oft-times surprising other shoe drops, is remarkable. And the way she creates the very best in memorable characters is unmatched.
Another winning duet from Aly Martinez, I am happy to give The Truth About Us 5 big stars!
